NetEcon 2012
7th Workshop on the Economics of Networks, Systems, and Computation
Mar 30, 2012, held in conjunction with INFOCOM'12


The emergence of the Internet as a global platform for computation and
communication has sparked the development and deployment of many
large-scale networked systems. Often, these systems involve multiple
stakeholders with competing interests. Unmitigated selfish behavior in
these systems can lead to high inefficiency or even complete
collapse. Research interest in the application of economic and
game-theoretic principles to the design and analysis of networked
systems has grown in recent years. The NetEcon Workshop promotes
multi-disciplinary work and discussion about the role of incentives in
communication and computation.

It is our hope that NetEcon will serve as a feeder workshop, i.e.,
that expanded, polished versions of some NetEcon workshop papers will
appear later in major conference proceedings and refereed journals of
relevant research communities. Authors for whom publication in the
NetEcon online workshop papers would preclude later publication of an
expanded version in the relevant venue may elect to contribute only a
one-page abstract of their submitted paper to the NetEcon workshop
papers; such an abstract should include the URL of a working paper or
preprint that contains the main results presented at the NetEcon
workshop.  The authors can make this decision after they receive a
notice of acceptance.

Topics of interest to NetEcon'12 include, but are not limited to:

Use of incentives and economic mechanisms in peer-to-peer systems,
grids, cloud computing, spam prevention, security, Internet routing
and peering, wireless networks, and other computational systems

Methods for engineering incentives and disincentives (e.g.,
reputation, trust, control, accountability, anonymity, etc.)

Mathematical modeling and analysis of strategic behavior (or the lack
thereof) in existing, deployed systems

Empirical studies of strategic behavior (or the lack thereof) in
existing, deployed systems

Mathematical models and empirical studies on learning, information
exchange, diffusion, dynamics of cooperation and network formation,
and trades in social and economic networks

Algorithmic mechanism design

Critiques of existing models and solution concepts, as well as proposals
of better models and solution concepts

Privacy, security, and anonymity in incentive-compatible computational

Studies of polarization, online collaboration, crowdsourcing, and human
